      Not sure if I like the tingle!

      I purchased this Aquafresh Extra Care Mouthwash whilst it was on a 3 for 2 offer in Boots. You get a 500ml bottle, that is clear with a silver screw top lid and a minty blue liquid mouthwash. The labelling tells me this is alcohol free, family friendly (although not to be used by children under 6 years), strengthens and protects and is Tingling Mint in flavour I always use a mouthwash after brushing my teeth, so I use this twice a day. After brushing my teeth I use the lid to measure out my mouthwash, I fill the lid to near the top and rinse my mouth for a minute before spitting out. The smell is quite an overpowering mint, like the very strong XXX mints, so if you are not a fan of mint flavour you may want to give this one a miss. The taste however is not all that strong, yes it's minty of course and does give a very slight tingle. It definitely makes my mouth feel clean as you can feel it tingling for a good while after use. The thing I didn't like is that my tongue feels a little numb after use. In all honesty I probably wouldn't buy this unless it was on offer and my regular mouthwash wasn't as I am not keen on the after effect on my tongue. But aside from that'd it is a nice, minty mouthwash that leaves your mouth feeling clean.

      Well Worth Trying.

      There all too often seems to be a trade off between effectiveness and pain when it comes to mouthwash, so when a mouthwash calls itself 'Tingling' I was worried about trying it. However, Sainsbury had it on offer for £1.50. I do love my Aquafresh Iso Active foaming fang paste and my usual Dentyl Enamel Restore was £4.20 and I am thrifty, so I gave it a go. I was glad I did. It might be that I was using it with its brand mate toothpaste but the combination of the mouthwash and the Aquafresh Iso Active toothpaste did work well together. My gums continued to improve, my teeth looked visibly better and best of all, my mouth and tongue were a nice healthy pink. The tingling turned out to be a pleasant minty fresh taste rather than the feel of my skin shredding, which is what I feared from the name and the experience of other products. The cap doubles as the measuring cup. The dosage is marked on it but, especially for those of us with poor eyesight, is rather difficult to see and so use. This is a shame, as the mouthwash itself is good at strengthening teeth through its flouride content and killing bacteria so the gums are healthier. The taste is pleasantly minty and not too overpowering. Well worth trying, especially with Aquafresh toothpastes which it does seem to be most compatible with.

      A really good mouthwash that the whole family can use.

      After trying many, many different techniques in trying to persuade my children to keep their teeth, i have now found that a brushing/ mouthwash regime seems to be the way to go. After trying a few different mouthwashes available i came across this one recently at a reduced price of £1.00 a bottle, and with it being an "Aquafresh" product and stating it was "family friendly", i was quitely confident that it would serve it's purpose. The bottle itself is slightly easier to open than most of the other mouthwashes we have used previously, hence stopping the wandering around the house my children did to find an adult to open it for them, ok on the trip out, but much messier on the trip back to the bathroom (we have had a few incidents of spillages, though my settee does smell beautifully minty fresh now!). Directions for use are simple enough, use twice daily after brushing your teeth, the cap doubles up as a measuring device and provides ample quantities for both child/ adult sized mouths. The taste is a big thing for me. I prefer a quite strong minty taste, leaving my mouth feeling like i have actually cleaned it (this is rare due to my love of strong flavoured foods!), but my children likes a mild taste, i have to say this product achieved both! This mouthwash is "alcohol free", which means that it is indeed minty enough for me, but in regards to my childrens taste doesn't have the intensity of an adults mouthwash, we have so far had no complaints from anyone in it being to strong for use. Not only does this product claim to keep mouths clean and fresh, but also to help the enamel on your teeth, containing an active strengthening mineral that binds to your teeth when being used, thus protecting any weaknesses in the surface, this is of course a claim i cannot agree/disagree with, but every little helps! With daily use this 500ml bottle lasts us a good few weeks, and to me has certainly helped towards my childrens (and mine!) general oral health, recommended! This product is available widespread, but usually retails around the £1.50 - £2.00 mark. Thanks for reading x

      Disadvantages

      Feel the tingle

      I am not particularly fussy about which mouthwash I use, but I normally do prefer to go for a recognised brand as I would trust them to be good for my teeth. I picked up this one from Aquafresh as it is on offer in Tesco and currently half price, making it £1.42 for the 500 ml bottle instead of £2.85, which works out at £0.28/100 ml. I thought this was not a bad price and according to the Tesco website the deal is on until 24th June. The mouthwash comes in a fairly typical looking bottle with a fresh and clean looking design as you can see from the picture. It is clear, so you can see the blue mouthwash inside and as with most mouthwashes, you cap pour the liquid into the cap to get the right amount. The bottle states that this mouthwash can be used from the age of 6, so it is suited to families who all want to share it. I like to use the mouthwash after brushing my teeth or sometimes at other times during the day, such as if I want to get the taste of tea or coffee out of my mouth or something. This mouthwash is supposed to be kept in the mouth for one minute, which I do think is quite a long time. I normally only keep it in my mouth for a slightly shorter time, probably more like 40 seconds. The reason why I can't keep it in any longer is that the tingling sensation of this flavour starts to build up and feel way too intensive! When I first put this in my mouth it has quite a generic minty taste, not too strong and a little bit sweeter than normal mint, but slowly the tingling starts to build up. Eventually it starts to make my tongue feel a bit uncomfortable and stingy so I have to spit it out. The tingle is a bit too much and a bit off putting for me. I only swish it around the mouth and I don't gargle with it as the feeling of that makes me feel a bit sick, regardless which mouthwash. Other than that, it does what you would expect from a mouthwash and keeps my mouth feeling fresh, giving fresh breath and cleaner feeling teeth. I have not noticed any special improvement in my teeth from using this brand, but I wasn't really expecting to! I might get it again on offer because I like a bargain, but I wouldn't buy it at full price because it is no better than any other mouthwash really and the tingle doesn't appeal to me.

      A great mouthwash and it works!!!

      I love using mouthwash because a good one will leave your mouth feeling extremely clean and refreshed! I'm not too fussed about what brand of mouthwash I buy, I tend to buy the cheapest or the one on offer. I'm always looking to save money! 2 weeks back aqua fresh tingling mint mouthwash was on offer at my local tesco, a 500ml bottle was only £1 which was half the rrp! So without hesitation I picked up a couple of bottles. Overall I'm glad I did because I have found it to be rather good and I will now go into more detail about this particular product! --- the bottle --- The bottle is stylish and different To others on the shelf, it's quite thin and tall and has a nice design by aqua fresh in the front. The bottle clearly highlights the fact that the mouthwash is family friendly. It says that it can be used by people from the ages of 6 years through to adults. There is also a label stating that this product is alcohol free! This is a bonus and makes the mouthwash worth buying for the whole family. The back label gives information about the mouthwash and you are given instructions on how to use the mouthwash. You are told to fill the lid cap, use twice a day and swish round your mouth for 1 minute. Overall the bottle is a bit different and looks nice in my bathroom! Also the fact that it is 500 ml means that it will last you quite a while, a bottle lasts me around 3 weeks. The mouthwash: I really like the taste of the mouthwash! It's lovely and minty, it's not too strong and leaves a mild tingle in your mouth. You can feel your mouth being cleaned and after you spit to mouthwash out you can definately tell that it's cleaned and left you with a fresh breath and fresh taste in your mouth. The mouthwash is an appealing blue colour and I love the look of it! I have noticed that my teeth feel nicer to touch with my tongue after using this, it's gets the places that are easily missed when brushing with a tooth brush. The fresh breath you get from using this produc lasts a while and will get in through most of the day with nice breath! :) overall the taste is good and the cleaning works well. My gums also feel less sensitive after using this. Overall: Overall I will buy this again if it's on offer, it's not the best I have tried, but there is nothing wrong with it. It's just a nice mouthwash that does its job! Pleased I tried it out :) I will give it a 4/5 Thanks for reading My review :) Josh

      DO NOT USE THIS MOUTHWASH ! HAS BURNT ULCERS INTO MY MOUTH !!!

      I'd recommend anyone against using this Mouthwash. I bought it from Morrisons as it was on a promotion for £1 to try it. I regret doing so, I'm going to be contacting Aquafresh ASAP regarding this and may even consider taking it further as I've been in pain for about a week and I'm still in pain now. Even drinking water hurts. I've had mouth ulcers before but the only time I've ever had ulcers this bad and painful was when I was punched in the mouth. (Not over exaggerating!) I've got 1 bad ulcer right on the tip of my tongue which is really painful, along with a large one under my tongue which is also painful, on the left side between my tongue and teeth. The whole left side of my tongue is sore and tender. I have a 3rd ulcer on the right inside of my bottom lip too. On top of that my bottom lip has been sore and tender as well and it looks like a strip of skins been burnt off. All this since I used this mouthwash. Was perfectly fine before hand. It's literally burnt my mouth causing the ulcers. It says on the front that this is a Family Friendly mouth wash. That its a Tingling Mint. However there's nothing friendly about it, and I definitely would not give this to anyone else yet alone a child aged 6 or over as recommended on the front of the bottle. I'm 24 and I'd never use it again... as I can barely eat through the pain of the mouth ulcers this have given me. But seriously... DO NOT BUY THIS MOUTHWASH !!! Going to be contacting the company ASAP regarding this and if compensation is not issued I may even take it to a no win no fee due to the pain in in at the moment. (Not over exaggerating, it's extremely painful. I have a pretty high pain threshold as well)

      Great value for money and another excellent product in the Aquafresh range

      Oral care is a hugely important part of everyday and having great products to help is something I always try to ensure I do. For me the best brand out there and the one I regularly have on my shelves is Aquafresh so when they started to offer a new mouthwash I decided to give it a shot but was it another great product in the range or a step in the wrong direction? Positives: - Alcohol free - Freshens breath quickly and easily with a great minty smell and taste that stays with you long after use - Strengthens teeth through the use of active minerals that work with the tooths enamel to keep the teeth as strong as possible. - Family friendly (can be used by children from age 6 to adult) - Adds an extra layer of cleaning and protection to your oral care regime in a very quick and easy way - Available on regular deals meaning you can get this for around £1 which is excellent value for money - Only use a little to get great results - Leaves gums feeling very clean and healthy with no painful brushing over them daily or bleeding that can occur sometimes due to gums not being at their cleanest Negatives: - A very strong taste and tingle that some people may find too much although for me this is ok and I would happily use the product Overall for me this is a great little addition to my oral care regime and one that makes sure I have fresh smelling breath as well as adding to the cleaning power already applied during brushing my teeth. I find that with this mouth wash my gums felt very clean and healthy and this is something which has led to me to use this each and every day even when not needing a full brush to just give that great feeling. Great value and a product that feels like a truly quality addition to your oral care regime which also takes hardly any time to add to the brushing you do each and every day.

      Disadvantages

      Too mild and won't be using it any more

      I like to use a good mouthwash after cleaning my teeth and oral hygiene is very high on my agenda. I usually use a strong mouthwash but my dentist has advised me I am overdoing it apparently and I needed to use something a bit milder. He suggested AquaFresh Extra Care Tingling Mint mouthwash and so I bought a 500ml bottle for £2.75. The packaging is a plastic bottle, nothing fancy and you can actually see the contents inside the bottle. It looks blue and as it's advertised as being 'minty' I suppose the colour was no surprise. I have to say this feels like a very weak mouthwash in comparison to what I am used to. It does NOT make my mouth tingle at all after I has swilled it about for the recommended time. The bottle has the usual twist off cap which also doubles up as a measuring device. My mouth doesn't feel any fresher after I have used this mouthwash and it doesn't taste any different to having just brushed my teeth. I'm sorry Mr Dentist but I have passed this particular mouthwash to the back of the bathroom cabinet. I need to have a mouthwash that actually feels like it's setting my mouth on fire and killing all those bacteria. This feels more like a child's first mouthwash might feel. In fact, the little lad actually uses it so that just goes to show how mild this mouthwash actually is, if a fussy 6 yea old is prepared to use it. Not recommended by me. Two stars is all you get.

      Too Mild in my opinion

      I've always taken dental hygiene really seriously so as well as brushing mouthwash is always used every morning. I've always used listerine as i felt it gave me the best clean but my girlfriend didnt like the burning sensation so we decided to try a milder mouthwash. Aquafresh extra care is the first one we have tried and I have been mildly impressed with it overall. It leaves your teeth feeling nice and smooth on your tongue and the flavour is very mild which i did not personally like as it did not feel like i was using a mouthwash after years of listerine use. One of the drawbacks is that it did not leave me with the sensation you get from other mouthwashes of having strong minty breath afterwards. I would say this product is probably best suited to children. I would say overall Good on Teeth but not great on breath.

      A weak mouthwash that doesn't seem to leave any minty aroma

      When it comes to oral hygiene I try my best to make sure my teeth, gums and mouth are as looked after as possible. I try to be vigilant by cleaning my teeth thoroughly at least twice a day and also when possible I try to use a mouthwash, more as an added minty blast of freshness rather than for any cleaning purposes though. I do have preferences to certain products, though when it comes to a bargain I am easily swayed, so when I saw this AquaFresh Extra Care Tingling Mint mouthwash on a 'Buy one get one free' offer at Superdrug a few weeks back I immediately popped it into my basket whilst giving myself an imaginary tap on the back for getting such a bargain.. The mouthwash comes housed in a transparent looking bottle which is upright standing. The bottle has a wide appearance from the front but is slim line from the side view and veers in towards the neck where there is a plastic silver cap placed directly on top. Because of the clear appearance of the bottle we can see that the contents are a pale, minty blue in colour which is appropriate for representing the 'Tingling Mint' taste that accompanies it. The liquid has a somewhat watery appearance whilst still in the bottle and seems comparatively thin, but how did it fare as a mouthwash? After removing the lid, which is a fairly easy screw cap, this doubles as a measure device and tough seems small it does hold the required amount for usage and has a line around the rim indicating where to fill to. On pouring I noticed that there was a slight minty aroma though disappointingly didn't appear to have that minty 'zing' smell I was hoping for. The mouthwash is just as watery as it appeared whilst in the bottle and on first impressions I had to admit to being slightly dismayed though went ahead and used it anyway. The directions tell us that we can use this twice a day by filling the cap to the rim then rinsing around our mouths for 1 minute after brushing our teeth. I tend to only use mouthwash once a day and this is following my usual night time teeth regime so decided to stick to this.. My experience of using this: I tend to buy the Corsodyl Daily or Dentyl brands when it comes to mouthwash and though I have used AquaFresh toothpaste in the past and been quite happy this was the first time I had experienced any of their mouthwash products. This particular size is a reasonable 500ml and though regularly retails at around the £3 mark I purchased this for £2.50 and received one free which I deemed to be a very good bargain at the time. Though my children are 6 and 7 and regularly clean their teeth (with a little prompting), I wasn't overly sure about them using this family mouthwash despite it's claims it is suitable for children aged 6 and upwards. My own personal experience of this was neither negative or positive I'm sad to say. I found that once I began the rinsing process around my mouth I was disappointed to find the tingling mint was more of a faint hint of mint that though was pleasant, was not exactly what I was promised. The main reason for me buying these products as mentioned in a previous paragraph is to give my mouth a fresh and minty feeling and this seem to offer a whimpering minty aroma that was neither here nor there. On the whole I was disappointed with this mouthwash as it seriously lacked that 'zing' factor that my usual products give, so this in comparison was a very weak affair that didn't really feel any different to just cleaning my teeth and my toothpaste actually left a far more mintier aroma in my mind which says it all really. On one hand I can see it not being promoted as being *too* strong due to it being a family product and for children it may well be perfect, but for adults in my opinion it just lacks that strength, though as it is alcohol free this may explain the lack of 'oomph'. I have just used up one bottle and because I'm not a wasteful person I will definitely use the remainder of the 'free' bottle up but I can't see me buying this particular product again as it just doesn't seem to do anything worthwhile. Yes it seemed a bargain getting two for just £2.50 but in future I will pay slightly more for one of my tried and tested mouthwashes that leave their mark and this unfortunately isn't one of them. 2 out of 5.. and that's being kind.

        Not really worth buying for me.

        I'm quite keen on keeping my mouth in minty fresh condition. I want my teeth to be well looked after, but also I do not want to have bad breath. I'm not 100% convinced of the effectiveness of mouthwash compared to the price, so I dabble with different brands every now and then. I came across this particular brand as it was on special offer in tesco's, buy one get one half price, so I ended up paying around £3 for a fairly large bottle of this. The mouth wash comes in a clear, but slightly tinted bottle, light blue. It is plastic and softly pliable. The lid is an easy screw on and off. There is a line on the inside of the lid which shows you how much you have to fill it up with. I find I don't need that much and use the line of the lid as a maximum rather than a minimum. The mouthwash is very minty fresh and feels nice and refreshing in your mouth. It really does tingle, and if you leave it in for too long it can sting your gums and mouth. It also feels very clean. I use it after cleaning my teeth and it really makes the job feel finished and complete. For around one hour after using my mouth feels that extra bit clean and fresh. The problem is it really does only last that amount of time and for the rest of the day it feels no difference. Although I have only used two of these bottles now, so it is hardly a very long term study I am reporting on, I have noticed no major difference in the health of my gums during this time. This mouthwash is a great boost for the mornings after you clean your teeth, but it is so short term that I really couldn't justify buying it again. In these times of recession I have to be careful with my pennies, and this mouthwash is one thing I can live without!

        well worth trying if you see it on offer

        I'm afraid I am not very loyal to any particular brand of mouthwash - as long as it is one I know and trust which is on offer I will purchase it. I have bought many brands over the years for our family including Plax, Listerine and Total Care which have all been good but lately I have been using Aquafresh Extra Care Family Friendly which I rather like and only cost £2 for 500ml. The bottle is as shown (above) and has plenty of information about how to use, ingredients, general cautions, website address etc. It tells me on the front that it 'strengthens and protects' and this is explained on the reverse as apparently it 'contains an active strengthening mineral which binds to the tooth's enamel', also it claims to freshen the mouth and, best of all, it is alcohol-free. The mouthwash is suitable for children aged 6 + and family although I reckon it may put young kids off using mouthwash as it is quite strong for 'virgin' mouths in my opinion and certainly lives up to it's description of 'tingly'. However, for adults I think this product is good if you find Listerine too strong as I do- nothing worse than 'burning' your mouth:( The mouthwash is easy to use once you have unwrapped the wretched heavy clingy plastic (which all brands seem to have these days) and it is just a matter of shaking the bottle,unscrewing the plastic silver and measuring out a capful & rinsing for one minute after having flossed and brushed the teeth. The flavour I have is spearmint which is a welcome change from ordinary mint. It tastes crisp and fresh and does indeed make the mouth seem cleaner. I cannot confirm that it has actually strengthened our tooth enamel but tend to trust Aquafresh products so we shall see... I am really pleased that this does not contain alcohol but would like to understand more about the list of ingredients as they make little sense to me: however, if you are interested, Aquafresh have listed them in good clear lettering on the reverse label. I will definitely be buying more of this mouthwash if I see it on offer because the whole family seem to like it, the taste is good, it does not make your mouth feel like it's on fire after use and it does not break the bank. I was surprised to see low star ratings for this product and I am awarding 5 stars based on adult usage.

          A really terrible mouthwash

          I always like to use a mouthwash after brushing my teeth to make my mouth and breath feel fresher, but I'm not loyal to any particular brand. I bought this one because it was on offer in Morrisons for £1 which is much cheaper than any of the usual ones I've used. The bottle is clear plastic so you can easily see when you're running out, and it has a simple screw on lid so it's easy to open rather than any of the usual silly 'safety' lids which are just annoying. As with most mouthwashes the lid is also supposed to be used to measure out how much you need, a capful each time, but I prefer not to use it for this as that just mean the top of the bottle can get messy. The liquid is bright blue and is just slightly thicker than water. The taste is a pleasant enough sweet mint flavour, but I really don't know where the name 'tingling mint' comes from because it doesn't have any kind of fresh or tingly sensation as you would expect. It doesn't burn or sting like some mouthwashes do. I actually find that after using this my mouth just doesn't feel fresh at all. I use mouthwash to freshen my mouth even further after brushing, but when using this it feels worse when I've used this than when I've just brushed my teeth and not bothered with mouthwash. My breath doesn't seem particularly fresh and my mouth and teeth don't feel that clean. I can believe that it does strengthen and protect the teeth because it leaves them feeling coated like there are particles clinging to the surface of the teeth to protect them, but that's probably also the reason why it leaves my mouth feeling so horrible and unfresh. I really don't like this at all and will not be buying it again.

          I shan't be buying it again

          ==Aquafresh Extra Care Tingling Mint Mouthwash== I do use mouthwash a great deal as I always like to brush my teeth floss my teeth and then give them a good rinse round with a mouthwash. To be fair I usually by which ever brand that is on offer and I am not too fussed about switching brands all the time. This is the reason I ended up getting this Aquafresh Extra Care Mouthwash as generally Aquafresh is not a brand I think of especially highly. The mouthwash itself was on offer in Morrison's for "Better Than Half Price" not so long ago and was a little over the £1 price range. Its usual selling price is at £3.05 p which I know that I would never buy, not for that price, not for this mouthwash or indeed any other. This Aquafresh mouthwash claims to be family friendly and suitable for children from 6 years old to adults. It states on the front that not only does it help to strengthen but it also protects. The mouthwash itself is alcohol free unlike a lot of other mouthwashes. For the price paid you get a good size bottle which holds 500 ml. The bottle is of an average design and does say anything special to me. It serves it purpose but doesn't necessarily look like the new product which it is as it is not at all eye grabbing or interesting. The clear plastic bottle shows you the light blue turquoise colour of the mouthwash held inside. On unscrewing the silver cap from the bottle the mint fresh smell is noticeable but not overwhelming like a lot of mouthwashes can be but I guess that is because this mouthwash doesn't contain any alcohol. The directions for use are simple and follow that which any other mouthwash would be. You need to use the product twice a day after brushing. You use the cap on the bottle to get a good measure of the product and fill it all the way up before pouring it into your mouth and then rinsing well for a good minute or so. Then you spit it out. Simples. The mint flavour of the product is really rather mild and I can't say that I found this product to be as good as a lot of the Listerine mouthwashes I use. I liked the subtleness of it and was glad ity didn't burn the inside layer of skin in my mouth off, like a particular Listerine product I have used but I did find it rather lacking. I suppose because it is a family friendly mouthwash they have had to make it a lot more mild if little mouths will be using it. However there is only me and himself using the mouthwash and we both like to feel like we have had a good rinse out with a mouthwash that has actually done something. This Aquafresh mouthwash just felt like a poor substitute for a good mouthwash and even the mild mint flavour of the mouthwash didn't last very long on my breath. I obviously don't know if the product did any good at strengthening or protecting my teeth like it states on the bottle but I generally felt that it was a weak product that probably wouldn't have done very much. All in all it has to be said that because I saw no difference in the look of my teeth or feel a great benefit breath wise from using this mouthwash that it is probably not one I would pick up again unless it is of course dirt cheap. It did freshen up my breath slightly and it may well have given my teetha little bit of strengthening or protection but on the whole it seems like a weak product for adult teeth and unless it is being used by smaller mouths I wouldn't really recommend it. I think for all these reasons a very average score of 2 out of 5 stars is in order fort this Aquafresh Extra Care Mouthwash. Not recommended unless you are giving it to children over 6 as it would be far better suited to them! I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you. Many thanks for taking the time to read.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Not for me this!

            One thing I use a lot of is mouthwash. As someone with deteriorating tooth enamel (I have an eating disorder) but as someone who also enjoys a rich diet and the odd fag (ok lots of those!) tooth hygiene and fresh breath are really, really important to me! I spotted this in Poundland costing of course a pound a bottle! The Packaging: The see-through bottle holds 250ml of the light blue transparent liquid and it has a silver twist on/off cap/lid to the top of it. On the front label we are told that it is Aquafresh 'Extra Care', Family Friendly Tingling Mint Mouthwash and that it is suitable for 6yrs to adult to use and that it strengthens and protects teeth. On the back of the bottle other information listed includes being told a bit about the product and how to use, ingredients and the size are listed, the best before date is clearly stated and contact details for GlaxoSmithKline (the manufacturer of the product are also given. Nice enough bottle and informative enough it is. A Bit About The Product According To The Information Listed On The Back Of The Bottle: Aquafresh Extra Care is a new, great tasting, alcohol-free mouthwash that is suitable for the whole family from age 6 years to adult. It not only freshens, but contains an active strengthening mineral which binds to the tooth's enamel, to help protect in areas that need it most. Using It: All you do no matter how old you are is to swill a cap in the mouth for about a minute of the liquid, priory measured out into the cap and spit it out after cleaning your teeth first and you can do this up to twice a day. This has a really strong, pungent aroma of sweet spearmint to it. Taste wise well it is as sweet as it smells and is fairly bitter as well as sweet and it does taste really minty. However I find this really strong and that it makes my tongue tingle in a really uncomfortable way so would I personally feel happy to give this to a child?....Well not really as it is so heavily flavoured and not all that pleasant due to the sour, tinny taste that is left in the mouth way after using it. Containing fluoride this is meant to help make teeth stronger though doesn't say it will help with tooth decay and the likes. This does freshen the breath for a short time, say about 10 minutes and that's it really. I'm not all that impressed with it on flavour and what it is meant to help us with to be honest. I guess it helps with tooth enamel, though I have no definitive proof of this and nowhere am I told that it is meant to fight plague and tooth decay in general. This is simply an ok mouthwash but not as great as some I have used in the past sadly. Available in all good chemists and supermarkets and usually priced at about £2 a bottle if not on offer.
